NRS Brake Pads

NRS (or NUCAP Retention System) Brake Pads are set on the backing plate using tons of tiny hooks to latch the pad to the plate. This prevents Friction Delamination (pad's bond to plate breaking down). Friction Delamination causes vibrations from the pads which in turn cause the noise heard from your brakes. Since the pads are attached to the plate with hooks instead of adheisive, it is stronger and won't breakdown. These brakes are used in NASCAR because of the intense heat the pads can handle and Friction Delamination won't occur. The pads also provide 100% stopping power down to the last millimeter of fricton. NRS Brake Pads are definately something you should look into.
